‘Fateful Mornings is a haunting dissection of the broken heart of America.’ Val McDermid
For fans of James Lee Burke and Cormac McCarthy, Tom Bouman is the new must-read author exploring the outer darkness of contemporary America.
In Wild Thyme, Pennsylvania, Officer Henry Farrell’s life is getting complicated. Widowed and more traumatised than he cares to admit, he is caught up in an affair with a local woman, and with helping out his friend’s barn construction job – on which the clock is ticking. When a troubled old acquaintance of theirs becomes the prime suspect in the disappearance of his girlfriend, it becomes increasingly clear that something seriously dark is at large in the woods that surround them.
Against this old and strange landscape – where silence rules – a fascinating and troubling case ensues, as Henry struggles for his very survival.
A haunting dissection of the broken heart of America.
Tom Bouman’s words cut straight and true, in this riveting mystery about a good man caught in the ruined Eden of rural America.
Officer Farrell, who thinks a lot but speaks so little . . . proves to be excellent company.
Bouman shows an insider’s understanding of the territory and creates his characters with understated economy and vitality.
